Was on my local round of thrifting yesterday. Picked up Zelda: Ocarina of Time (Collectors Edition w/Gold Cart) at the value village - complete in the box for $20. Looked it up on ebay with my phone just before buying it and the cheapest complete copy on ebay is going for around $70 to $80. This should definitely sell fast.
...pics or it didnt happen, right?
...did I mention that the cartridge was in excellent shape? And the manual was not bad either. The box is a little bent on one side, but such is life. Cant complain in the least for $20.
<- happy me.
I also got a mini arcade from 1981 of Frogger (small green arcade) by Sega at the value village (missing battery cover though)...the same store that last week I got 2 copies of Windows 7 (ultimate and pro) complete retail for $5 each (made a quick $200 flip on those). The value village here is awesome and they dont price gouge like the GW. I still go to the GW, but you can only find deals on stuff that they dont look up online like some electronics like graphing calcs, movies/CDs/DVDs, and stuffed animals/toys (I scored 4 TI-83+ graphing calcs at the GW for $10/each and sold all of them for $40/ea on craigslist).
I know many of the GW employees around my area and they freely admit that they look most things up online in order to price them to get as much $$ as possible.
